It's weird how things become "things." Like mouthing "olive juice" when you were younger because the mouth motions are identical to "I love you." I was always markedly disappointed that people weren't sharing their affection with me. (My sensitivity started from a young age.) Anyway, we have two little babies, the size of olives growing… Continue reading Olive Juice
Yesterday, we had our 8wk ultrasound to check in on our little guys. According to various apps, they're the size of either kidney beans or raspberries. I'm finding it disconcerting that they're compared to food constantly, but I also am having trouble thinking of alternatives. Perhaps a small pebble? A stack of seven nickels? 300… Continue reading Krasbeans and other units of measurement

If they both have heartbeats are are growing appropriately, the miscarriage risk is significantly diminished. I am crossing every thing I have and praying that we see and… Continue reading 8 Weeks!

This was another vaginal ultrasound (like I'm used to) since it's so early. My blood pressure was surprisingly normal and I'm still… Continue reading 6w1d and our first ultrasound
I've been sort of paralyzed with fear. I google everything I put into my mouth and I'm just so anxious to see our babies on Tuesday. The spotting either has subsided or it was truly due to me sticking the suppositories too far up. If that's the case, I really caused myself a lot of… Continue reading Fearfully forging forward….
The spotting had continued since Monday and man, it sucks. I took a pregnancy test last night again and was worried bc the one of the lines seemed light. Recently, I've been getting the hours between 1-4 am to myself, blissfully awake with only the internet to keep me entertained. So I've read about everything… Continue reading How many sticks does it take?
